When I click print in Firefox and chose Paperless Printer it would start and run the program. By doing this I save on paper and ink plus I can save in any format that Paperless Printer has. It used to work until approximately a month ago. Paperless Printer still works in I.E. and MS Edge. I've reinstalled P.P. and I also tried refreshing Firefox but nothing helped. Paperless Printer shows as a printer in the list and when chosen the PP program would open up and take over the printing needs and then just store the created file. Now Firefox starts to ready the page(s) to print but PP doesn't open up.

I've been using Firefox credit card autofill since it was introduced, with no problem. Recently when I tried to fill in a form with my credit card information stored in Firefox, I get the message in a popup box entitled Windows Security- "Firefox is trying to use stored credit card information. Confirm access to this Windows account below."

Why is this happening? Can I disable this in Windows Security or in Firefox?

I started using Firefox for the first time last week and yesterday I decided to update my computer (Mac OS Catalina 10.15.4), and once the update was finished I saw a ? instead of the Firefox icon. I was still able to open the app, but it was as if everything was completely reset. "Welcome to Firefox" page, had been signed out of my account -- and even when I signed in, I got an email that a "new" device was logging in, and my entire account had been wiped of all extensions, bookmarks, settings, etc.

Thankfully, I was able to recover an older version of my profile to replace the deleted bookmarks, browser history, and most (but not all) of my settings -- but I absolutely do not want this to happen every time I update my computer, and I don't even understand why this happened in the first place. No browser I've ever used has just erased all my data and history when all I did was install a minor update to my OS. Not a great first impression tbh, but if I can prevent it from ever happening again that would help.

The website https://www.finanznachrichten.de collects financial news from publishers all over the world. Some news are just a link to the publisher's website - this works still fine. Some news can be read directly on the webpage fully. But some articles are NOT displayed fully - only the beginning of the text is displayed followed by a link "Den vollständigenArtikel lesen...." (in english: "Read the full article..." ) This link leads to the full article on the publisher's website. My problem is: This link is NOT DISPLAYED anymore in firefox in all news of this kind on this website. But is was normally displayed in older versions of firefox. By the way: the webmaster of finanznachrichten.de wrote that THEY didn't apply any changes!!!

I just update firefox each time a new release comes up and I always keep all settings as they were before. In other browsers (IE for example) it is ALSO still displayed!!! So my idea is that a setting in firefox prevents those links from being displayed(?) Is that possible and if yes: Which settings do affect the displaying of web-links? (ad block is not the reason by the way - I verfified that) Here an example news: https://www.finanznachrichten.de/nachrichten-2020-04/49525168-nestle-aktie-ein-klarer-gewinner-503.htm Below the text other browsers display the mentioned full-article-link but firefox doesn't anymore. Any idea in the community?

I am a user of Mike's Weather Page (and have used it for years). I disable my ad blocker when using it because on the top of the right-hand side, his Facebook page is vertically bookended with ads. I am using MS System 10.

The site works well with Chrome, and I can see his Facebook page displayed. But I am unable to see his Facebook page and the bookend ads with Firefox. All I see is the hotlink URL for his Facebook page, which, if I click on it, opens a new window containing his Facebook page.

How do I get the Facebook page to open within Mike's Weather Page?

I was experimenting with whether I could disable certain cipher suites in Firefox in order to force a remote website to negotiate a different one. However I found that if I went into about:config and searched for settings with "ssl3" in the name, and set ALL of them to false (security.ssl3.dhe_rsa_aes_128_sha, security.ssl3.dhe_rsa_aes_256_sha, etc. -- there were 15 of them), I am still able to connect to https://www.instagram.com/ , https://www.google.com/ , and https://www.paypal.com/ with no error, even after restarting.

However, https://support.mozilla.org/ does give me the "Error code: SSL_ERROR_NO_CYPHER_OVERLAP" error. On the other hand, https://www.mozilla.org/ works with no error. I cannot discern any pattern as to why some sites work and some don't, even after disabling all cipher suites. Why are *any* of them accessible?

Out of the blue I received a message stating I was being attacked on my Mac by software that maybe Ransomware. I was asked to close and delete the files.

I run Mac Os 10.14.6 and have never had any previous problems. After quarantining these files I quit Firefox and then could not open it. I therefore deleted the .app and reinstalled Firefox 75. I can only start up Firefox by using the Terminal Command window using the Profile manager. I created a new profile but cannot see my old profile within the Profile Manager. I can find the old profile under Profile's in Application Support/Users. So despite having a new default set created, I still cannot get the Firefox.app to open by clicking on it. I have now deleted the old profile and still cannot open the Firefox app from the dock or applications folder.

help please!

I could never find out why I got the message "Ransomware may be trying to access my computer", except two files have appeared in my bin; Edgar Poe Murder and Righteous Games.

Any help appreciated.

I am living in Spain, and browse in English. Often when I do a search with Google, although the result is linking to a page in English, the final page is in the one for the Spanish market (es_Es).

A good example is the Seagate website. Even direct links from other forums are redirected to their Spanish version. Also, after cleaning cache for Seagate sites, restarting, AND trying it in a Private Window.

My config: macOs 10.15.4 set to UK English. Firefox Dev Edition 76.0b3, (language same as OS) with: - Privacy & Security: Enhanced Tracking Protection > Standard - Privacy & Security: Locations > "Block new requests asking to access your location" checked - about:config > geo.enabled set to false. Google Search Region Settings are set to "United States". –
